The film industry used to be the sixth in the country in terms of exports and it's also victim of the widespread piracy in Mexico. Mexican film making reached its Golden Age roughly from 1935 until 1960. In the 70's however the government introduced its own brand of ExecutiveMeddling via financiation schemes that ended up virtually ruining local film making for more than 11 years. In spite of this, a few good films were made during this period, but they only got very limited commercial release. An alleged renaissance has been improving the quality, encouraging the rise of new talent like screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga, directors Creator/GuillermoDelToro, Creator/AlfonsoCuaron and Creator/AlejandroGonzalezInarritu and actors such as Guillermo Luna, Demian Bichir and Gael Garcia. Despite all this recovery, the film industry still depends heavily on government subsidies and only releases between 50 and 100 films a year.

The pop music industry is quite influential in the Spanish speaking world but it's very hampered because Mexico is a haven of copyright piracy. Local music that plays harder than 2 in the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness was actively ostracized by mainstream media for decades, specially after the fiasco caused by the "Rock y Ruedas sobre Avándaro", in which the government had to step in due to a sudden MoralPanic. Another factor that stifled the genre preferences was ''[[http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siempre_en_Domingo Siempre en Domingo]]'', a musical variety show displayed on Sundays, which, with a few exceptions, it was more a showcase of the presenter's favourite artists rather than a real musical variety show. Fortunetately, rock music has been more aceepted in recent years than before.

But there has been more stuff that, due to CreatorProvincialism , might never see the light of day outside from Mexico, like lots and lots of old movies and sketch series made between the 40's and 70's.

Traditional and cellular telephone services are quite inefficient and charge some of the highest service rates in the world. This in part due to the fact that most traditional phone land lines are serviced by a company called Telmex, property of Carlos Slim, the richest man on the planet, whose company enjoys a monopoly grant from the government. This has been changing as cable companies are entering the traditional phone services at a lower rate than Telmex, and recent laws allow people to switch companies without having to change phone numbers.
